Addison McLamb, a Chinese major, attended the George H.W. Bush China-U.S. Relations Conference held in Houston, May 11-13. This year the conference dealt with global infectious diseases and the role of Sino-American collaboration in constructing solutions to world health issues. Conference participants heard from the former and current directors of the CDC, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, executives from the Bank of China and Sinopec, and U.S. Vice President Biden, among others.
